Life World War 2 Colour Photos

I'm a big WW2 junkie and these new, never been seen before, World War 2 colour photos published by Life are incredible. Breathtaking in fact. Although they have been restored the colour is still very pure, the images captured beautifully.

I've watched a lot of footage and poured over loads of photography from the war but I don't think I've seen images like this.

The photos were captured by LIFE magazine's Frank Scherschel before and after D-Day.

I'm really happy that time is still being invested to find and restore material like this. As more and more survivors, civilian, soldier or victim, are passing away; it is important that we must never forget the tragic events of 1939 to 1945, or those that fought for our peace.
